Take care of our cutting boards - Instruction

Care advice for wooden cutting boards

Treat your cutting board

Your cutting board is primed with our own wax oil upon delivery, which means you can start using it immediately. If you treat your cutting board at regular intervals it will last longer, we recommend that you treat the board about 3 weeks apart. A good rule of thumb is to treat the cutting board when it starts to look faded. Choose a treatment that suits you!

We recommend natural treatment options for our cutting boards, such as vegetable oils such as linseed oil, rapeseed oil or cooking oil. It is also perfectly possible to treat the boards with coconut oil, and in that case we recommend that you choose an organic variety. Feel free to use beeswax together with the oil, as the oil penetrates and cares deeply, while the beeswax seals cavities, provides water-repellent properties and shine. Treat the cutting board regularly and it will last forever.

Our own wax oil is completely natural and contains food-approved linseed oil and Swedish beeswax. It is completely additive-free and you can safely place your food on our products. 

There are a variety of options on the market for treating cutting boards, the most common of which is paraffin oil, which is a petroleum-based oil that is, however, not an environmentally friendly option and is used, among other things, in the production of concrete and asphalt. Be sure to read through the safety regulations on the products you use for oiling.

After each use:
Wash your cutting board with warm water and use dish soap if necessary. Do not submerge the cutting board in water or run water on it for longer than necessary.

Every three weeks:
Treat the cutting board as needed. A good rule of thumb is to treat the cutting board when it starts to look pale and dry.

If necessary: 
Spray white wine vinegar or 5% vinegar on the cutting board with a spray bottle and wipe it with paper. It removes bacteria and helps the wood maintain its shine. It is also great to sprinkle coarse salt over the cutting board and scrub it with half a lemon, it cleans and removes bad smells. To remove difficult stains such as blueberries, you can take a fine-grained sandpaper and carefully sand the surface fine again. 

Storage:
Store the cutting board dry and avoid exposing it to moisture or hot environments as this can have an impact on the structure of the wood, which means that cracks and warping can occur. For example, avoid placing it next to the oven or stove and in windows where the sun shines in and heats. These places can result in large temperature differences which negatively affects the structure of the wood. 

Make like the chef:
Place a damp dishcloth under the cutting board when in use and it will lie firmly against the surface. Our cutting boards are also available with rubber feet for additional stability. They also lift the cutting board from the bench, which avoids moisture attack from below.
